  1. I loved these when I ate gluten, can't wait to try your gf version... they look great. I'll have to do some substitutions as I can't have the gluten free gluten (gum allergies), if they turn out ok I'll give you my substitutions for anyone else that may need them. Thanks for sharing your wonderful recipes with us.
